Marshawn Lynch: ‘You All Shove Cameras and Microphones Down My Throat’

By Aura Bogado Jan 29, 2015

For The Win is reporting that Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch addressed the media in a press conference Thursday, just three days ahead of this year’s Super Bowl. Lynch essentially turned his gaze on the media itself, stating, "I’ll just be looking at y’all the way you looking at me."

Lynch, who, as my colleague Jamilah King has point out, has made the mistake of "being unapologetically black and rebellious in a league business that depends on military-like obedience," scolded reporters for their obsession with him:

So you all can go and make up whatever you want to make up, cause I don’t say enough for you all to go put anything out on me. But I’ll come to y’all event and y’all shove cameras and microphones down my throat. When I’m at home in my environment, I don’t see y’all. But y’all mad at me. If y’all ain’t mad at me, then what are you all here for?
